4.1 Play and Exploration
Learning through experience
- Children have to experience play physically and emotionally.
- Children may play alone or with others.
- In their play children use the experiences they have and extend them to build up ideas, concepts and skills.
- While playing children can express fears and re-live anxious experiences. They can try things out, solve problems and be creative and can take risks and use trial and error to find things out.
